As Lukas says, here is a working example from one of my apps:

renderFormOn: html
    html form with: [
        html label for: 'from'; with: [
            html text: 'Enter your name & email address:'].
        html input type: 'text'; class: 'enquiry'; name: 'from';
callback: [:x | self nameAndEmail: x].
        html submitButton class: 'enquiry'; id: 'submit'; callback:
[self formComplete]]

N.B. #renderFormOn: is called within #renderContentOn:
